I am running Windows 10 Build 10122 on all my computers, using the native Windows Defender for my AV protection and occasional scans with MBAM Free.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, 64-bit

MBAM Premium, grandfathered from the old "Lifetime license" version. I think it was called "Pro"?? I'm not sure I'd go with Premium today if I had to pay the annual $25 subscription now used.

MBAE free

Microsoft Security Essentials

Occasional on-demand scans with free Emisoft Emergency Kit

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

I use MBAM premium (won it in an online contest) Win Patrol, and Avast.
I won it when there was just a one time charge.
I would not pay an annual charge charge.

Multi-Boot W7_Pro_x64 W8.1_Pro_x64 W10_Pro_x64 +Linux_VMs +Chromium_VM

For real-time protection
I have 5 bare metal installs and use 1 free AV on each OS of
- Panda or Avast or MSE

- MBAM Pro
- WinPatrol free
- Zemana Antilogger Pro
- MBAE free
- A few Browser add-ons (PaleMoon and Firefox)

No exclusions.
I had to tweak EMET so it would work with MBAE.

I also have Win 10 as a VM and use Windows Defender only for real-time protection.
I want to test Win 10 "as-is" so i don't consider it part of my vote.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Used to use Malwarebytes Pro, but wipped it completely after it starting BSODing the computer far too often. Overall caused more problems than it solved. Right now, as for antivirus, I'm using only ClamWin when needed, updating it not so often and scaning even less frequently.

Slowing getting rid of the unreliable antivirus programs that typically bloat the system with little benefit, if any.

As for real security, common sense is often good enough (when I'm in the mood to apply it ). Running everything as a non-admin account, a strict set of restrictive firewall rules (Windows firewall), strong passwords for everything, auxiliary user accounts for running critical programs, a good frequent backup just in case, testing new programs in virtual machines is all I need to keep myself free of trouble. Somewhen in the future I'll try AppLocker to make it even more restrictive.

Back on topic, I can't vote, there is no option for "no longer using it".

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

I have pay-fors MBAM and Emsisoft AM, Emsisoft shields ON, sometimes with MBAM shields on, mostly off.
I use pay-fors Avast and Avira anti-virus, each quarter, one has shields off, the other has shields on.
Everything that lets me -- I set 1st: quarantine it, 2nd: quarantine it, 3rd: ignore it. None are set to repair or delete. I manually check all quarantine pots regularly and either put back the known goods or delete the caught naughties. [I mummified free AVG, it's daid until I resurrect AVG solely for emergency purposes.]
